Yaya Toure will be leading his Elephants teammates into the Nations Cup tomorrow when the competition get underway, but they play first game on January 20 against Guinea.

The current African Footballer of the Year, was speaking to CNN when he hinted that he could leave Manchester City in the season to come as he refused to commit his future to the club.

"That's a big question and that's an easy question as well, and you have an easy answer... we'll see.

"I don't know. I'm at City. City is a great club where I've achieved lots of things," Toure answered when asked if he would remain at City.

This is the second time that the 31 year-old Ivorian Captain will raise dust over his commitment to the club.

Toure caused stirs of controversy after the club did not celebrate his 31 birthday the way he wanted them to; clubs like PSG indicated interest in him but the move never happened.

City coach, Manuel Pellegrini however, debunked thoughts that Toure may leave the club later on Friday

''I think Yaya is 100 percent committed with our team and with this team,"

"I don't have any doubts about that," Pellegrini said.
